Our history

Our story through the years

Novant Health UVA Health System was originally formed as a joint operating company owned by Novant Health and UVA Health on Jan. 1, 2016 to provide area patients with an integrated, specialized and high-quality network of care close to home. Under the agreement, Novant Health’s Virginia operations partnered with UVA Health’s Culpeper Hospital to form the regional health system.

On July 1, 2021, Novant Health UVA Health System became part of UVA Health. This means that our integrated network of physician offices, outpatient facilities and medical centers in Northern Virginia and Culpeper – including Culpeper Medical Center, Haymarket Medical Center and Prince William Medical Center – are now more closely aligned with UVA Medical Center.

UVA Health is an academic health system that recently expanded to include four hospitals across Charlottesville, Culpeper and Northern Virginia, along with the UVA School of Medicine, UVA School of Nursing, UVA Physicians Group and the Claude Moore Health Sciences Library. With more than 1,000 inpatient beds, approximately 40,000 inpatient stays annually and more than 1 million outpatient encounters annually at UVA Health, more than 1,000 employed and independent physicians provide high-quality, comprehensive and specialized care to patients across the Commonwealth and beyond. Founded in 1819 as just the 10th medical school in America, the UVA School of Medicine – with 21 clinical departments, eight basic science departments and six research centers – consistently attracts some of the nation’s most prominent researchers to develop breakthrough treatments to benefit patients around the world. Those research efforts are backed by more than $200 million in grant funding. UVA Medical Center is recognized as the No. 1 hospital in Virginia for children and adults by U.S. News & World Report, with seven specialties rated among the top in America. More than 230 UVA physicians are honored on the Best Doctors in America list. For more information, resources, and to follow us on social media, please visit uvahealth.com.
